Bully Free Zone

Bully Free Zone

We at DePaolo Middle School are committed to ensuring a safe and bully-free environment for the students at our school.

This webpage has been added to help parents talk to their children, students talk to other students, and teachers talk to the DePaolo Community about bullies and bullying.

No one has the right to be a bully or to be bullied.

Definition of BULLYING:

Bullying is when a stronger, more powerful person hurts or frightens a smaller or weaker person deliberately (on purpose) and repeatedly (again and again).
